As the music director for St. Ann’s parish in Coppell, Texas, Curtis
Stephan’s music ministry can be characterized as one of service. A lifelong
musician, Curtis received his Bachelor’s degree in music and his master’s
degree in Jazz studies from the University of North Texas. This engaging
composer and worship leader works tirelessly to serve the body of Christ,
both nationally and internationally, through his inspiring music and
spirit-filled workshop presentations.
Specializing in both Liturgical and youth-oriented events, Curtis brings his
dynamic presentation style to conferences both large and small. Among many
events, his faith-filled journey has included three World Youth Day
celebrations, The Living Global Rosary held in the Cotton Bowl—which he
directed—and a special Papal event for youth in Turin, Italy.
Having committed his life to serving the Gospel through music, Curtis—a 2006
Unity Award winner—has recorded three albums with spiritandsong.com, Through
, Sacred Revolution
and the contemporary Advent/Christmas CD, Born
. He has also composed theme songs for the National Catholic Youth
Conference (NCYC) and the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress Youth
Day. His most recent composition, Mass of Renewal
(a new Mass setting for
the new Roman Missal–) is already a Diocesan favorite across the U.S.
Strong roots in parish life and ministry combined with his many faith-filled
experiences and education let Curtis share something very special with each
community he visits. Whether he is helping musicians to develop their skills
through, composing/arranging, directing, recording or solo instrument
seminars; inspiring young hearts through concerts and prayerful events; or
renewing faith through workshops based on the New Roman Missal, Curtis’s
ultimate goal is to serve each parish he is invited to by helping them
finding their own voice to lift up to our God in praise.
Curtis currently lives in Frisco, Texas with his wife and three sons and is
available for concerts, workshops, new Roman Missal presentations and youth
